Valley of the Birdtail bookcover (HarperCollins)

The Waywayseecappo Indian reserve was created on the West side of the Birdtail river in western Manitoba in 1877. Two years later, on the other side of the river, white settlers established a town named Rossburn.

The story of these two communities is captured in Valley of the Birdtail: An Indian Reserve, a White Town, and the Road to Reconciliation (HarperCollins 2022). 

The book is co-authored by alumnus Andrew Stobo Sniderman (JD 2014) and Faculty of Law Associate Professor Douglas Sanderson (Amo Binashii).
